2020 Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard Taking Green Flag in Later Afternoon

The 2020 Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard Powered by Florida Georgia Line will start at 3:30 p.m. (ET) Sunday, July 5, 90 minutes later than in 2019.

The 27th annual NASCAR race weekend is moving to a new Fourth of July weekend date in 2020, with action on track for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series from Friday, July 3 through Sunday, July 5.

“Momentum and excitement continue to grow for our new NASCAR date on Fourth of July weekend in 2020,” IMS President J. Douglas Boles said. “This entire weekend will be a memorable celebration of America’s birthday with great racing, music and family fun.

“The later start time will give fans more of an opportunity to enjoy the festivities at the track and also hopefully create cooler conditions for everyone, especially in the dramatic closing laps of this annual NASCAR classic event.”

A strong, generation-spanning connection between IMS and honoring America will be enhanced through this new event date. Starting in 2020, IMS will host major event weekends on two holidays that celebrate American values, patriotism and sacrifice – the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on Memorial Day weekend and the Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard Powered by Florida Georgia Line on Independence Day weekend.

Along with FGL Fest, the Driven2SaveLives BC39 powered by NOS Energy Drink United States Auto Club (USAC) National Midget Championship event also will move to the new NASCAR event week in July 2020. The Speedway will also look to add special events and activations to the weekend schedule as part of its embrace of the holiday weekend.

Kevin Harvick of Stewart-Haas Racing won the 2019 Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard Powered by Florida Georgia Line on Sunday, Sept. 8.
